    I will get my eggs toward the end of this week. This will be my first try. Anyone going to be getting setup this week?



    edited to show off my one month olds babies.

    www.kywilber.com

    right now the security cam i have will only work with IE and google chrome.
    There are a total of 41.
    11 Crosses
    30 RIR

    they are getting big. I have not moved them to the coop outside yet as it is a cold spell right now.
    I have them in a 8ftx8ftx4ft boox in the garage.

    Also the wife has spoiled them. Now ever time someone goes into the garage they think they are getting grapes..
    They look up with the look like HELLO DID YOU FORGET SOMETHING???

    I just set 9 guinea eggs from my neighbor and have BCMarans and GCMarans expected in the mail from Gabbards Farm tomorrow. I thought I was done but the addict won out. I am looking forward to it so I will keep good hatching vibes going for all of us!

    I'm setting first thing tomorrow morning, shipped eggs that took a beating via transit. Letting them sit overnight to recoup. Trying my hand with a hairline crack in one egg, doctoring that up with some wax before setting.

    22 total
    8 polish x
    3 silkies
    11 EE/silkie mixes


    Homemade bator.

    Due date on or about the 6th
